Black on Black

In tonight's Ohio premiere of Julius X, playwright Al Letson mixes the politics of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar with the violence leading to Malcolm X's 1965 assassination to create a civil-rights fable set in 1960s Harlem. The drama depicts an African American activist who wants to break away from the Black Resistance movement, in which all whites are considered evil. Two allies turn on him and plot his murder. "All the characters are doing what they feel is right and in the best interest of the nation," says Karamu House director Justin Emeka. "So often, the cruelest deeds are done with the best of intentions." Julius X starts at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, February 24, at Karamu House, 2355 East 89th Street. Tickets are $15 to $25. Call 216-795-7077 or visit www.karamu.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Feb. 1. Continues through Feb. 24, 2008
